Faster than a cannon ball

Where were you while we were getting high?

Even at that young age they knew they would be successful and they describe that if their father ever tried to contact them at a later stage in their life he would find that they had actually made it and they would be drinking champagne and celebrating the success they had achieved the life.

The lyrics also explain how people change which refers to how their father changed from being a loving father to someone who felt that they could no longer stay in the family home and ended up leaving them.
